Jared pursued his undergraduate degree from the University of Denver, which complemented his love for the outdoors. After graduation, he built a career in investment banking and worked for some of the leading global financial services firms. When he eventually recognized his passion for helping and working directly with staff, he switched career paths to focus on the people side of the business; and pursued a graduate degree from Baruch College with an emphasis on Industrial and Labor Relations. During this time, he worked for the Professional Staff Congress/City University of New York (PSC/CUNY) where he oversaw human resources and benefits for the faculty and administrative members. He went on to leverage his talents working at a university as well as in the corporate sector.
In his free time, Jared enjoys traveling and spending time with his family (including 2 cats), reading non-fiction, and playing tennis.
